Entrepreneur Jason O'Neill is a regular teenager who saw an opportunity at the age of nine to make some money. He took action and Pencil Bugs were quickly born. Little did he know that the simple idea he created for a craft fair would become a successful business earning him awards and national media acclaim. Jason was the youngest at age eleven to receive the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and was named to a Forbes Top 10 List of Role Models 18 and Under at age twelve.
Jason speaks at schools (elementary through college), businesses, libraries, organizations, and conferences encouraging and inspiring people of all ages to try their ideas and give back to their communities. He donates a portion of his proceeds to help other kids and one day hopes to become a worldwide philanthropist.
Jason lives with his parents and dog, Rusty, in southern California. He enjoys family traveling, golfing with his dad, swimming, playing with his friends, and of course, playing video games. In addition to continuing to expand his Pencil Bugs business and publish his children's books featuring the Pencil Bugs characters, Jason has aspirations to be a video game designer.
